That is correct. Steering is a bit more difficult but easily overcome.

I am doing my install on the Dana 30 Saturday. I should not have to expect.to remove the ring gear from the carrier right? Also does anyone have the torque specs for the bearing retainers and hubs?

You shouldn't have to remove the ring gear from the carrier, no.

Here's a list of YJ torque specs: Jeep Wrangler YJ Vehicle TORQUE Specifications - TECH INFORMATION

One other thing I have not been able to get a clear answer on. Break in period. I was planning on installing it, driving about 10 miles and hitting the trails to test it out. I thought unless you were changing carriers or the ring and pinion there is no break in period. I have seen other threads on this stating that lunchbox lockers have a 500 mile break in period same as a complete regear. Can someone give a solid answer on this? I am assuming there is not one regardless of what I heard unless someone tells me that is incorrect with a reason.

Never mind, just called manufacturer. No break in period required.
